Get Diame for 3.5m..Come on we got rid of so many players why aren't we getting some in ? We as fans deserve more. I travel to liverpool most games and pay good money just to see the likes of shelvey."

"I would be happy if Sturridge further to a charming lad was a scoring lad, it would be what matter! I really hope that Dan becomes one of the most influent players around Luis Suarez as we need Sturridge's goals, movements, ability to combine and prowess to counter-attack quickly. He can be what once was Babel for Fernando Torres. The ideal complement for El Pistolero YNWA DS"

God knows 4 hw long given d club's current ambitionless policy. I think it won't be long b4 his strong desire 4 success bcomes glaringly divergent with dis club's self defeating policy.

"We don't want charm we want goalscorers and hopefully Sturridge will deliver after all he is being payed lots of money to do just that. If Rodgers does not change his youth mentality/policy he may go down as the worst manager ever to manage LFC. This may also result into our star players becoming frustrated by the sheer lack of quality."

"Allen had a great first three months, don't make me laugh. He was decent at best for the first month and now his true colours are on display. Sturridge has been and will continue to be a great signing for us. Lets just hope the pattern with BR is not, every five signings one is good."

"Kingluis007 - very well said. I totally agree. Brendan does love talking to the media, in fact he never shuts up. He's no Bob Paisley that's for sure, not even close. Next week (the 23rd) would of been Bob's birthday he would of been 93! Bob Paisley was a man of few words spoken quietly but he was true football genius. "
